VNC viewer screen colors are off

Hello. I'm running a VNC server along with a local VNC viewer on the same RHEL5 box. The colors for my GUI components look O.K. in the VNC viewer, but a map that the viewer displays is messed up. The color of the map is too blue. My system is using X11 protocol. I'm a newbie when it comes to Linux. Any help you could offer is appreciated.

increase it to 16 will solve your problem

Thanks for your response!

My command line for launching the VNC viewer includes the following : -depth 16 -truecolour -xrm *nColours: 200
My command line for launching the Xvnc server includes the following : -depth 16 RBG565 -co /usr/share/X11/rgb

I don't know what more to do to specify 16 bits versus 8 bits. Is there a config file that needs to change?
